the president can take without having to wait for any congressional action. let's bring in our cnn white house correspondent brianna keilar. she's working the story for us. what are you hearing? >> reporter: wolf, i'm told that there is very much a sense in this meeting between vice president joe biden and advocates of gun control as well as those who have suffered gun violence themselves or lost loved ones to it that there was actually very much a sense that this was an opportunity to do something and they believe they have a bit of, i guess you could say, a mandate to do something because of poll numbers showing the public opinion has shifted in this. the news that the vice president made today was that the white house is looking to go it alone, at least in some ways as it chooses to tackle this problem. go it alone without congress' help and observers of this debate, as you know, have said that this is definitely a possibility but biden today confirmed that it's something the white house is pursing. here's what he said. >> i want to make it clear that we are not going to get caught up in th

"usa today"
a strong column on cnn.com. >> thank you. >> we have stacked the deck against ourselves even when we create a fiscal cliff as a way to force real, meaningful action, we choose to fail because in an odd way, failure is much easier to explain. just blame the other guy. success, on the other hand, comes with responsibility and no one wants that. so where do we end up going from here? >> well, that's the problem. we all want someone to blame, which is what we're doing here. and so republicans, you can blame them for their intrans ji dense on taxes, um blame the democrats for not doing any entitlement reform deduction. i believe you can blame the president for playing small ball when he should be playing a larger game there and maybe he will down the road. but if you actually succeed and were to do a big package and were to do tax reform, as people say they want to do, then you'd have to take responsibility for that. then you'd have to go home to the voters and say, i made the tough decisions. you might not like them but please vote for me again and members of congress are sort of afraid to do t

"outfront" tonight, drama, intrigue, tears, it was almost byzantine. under fire, john boehner narrowly won a first round vote to keep his job as house speaker. it's pretty amazing, because the last time the first round of voting was too close to call was 1923. so after all the votes were meticulously counted, boehner's tally topped out at 220. that is only six more than the bare minimum he needed to keep his job. now, as for the tears, of course,
of a sudden you're hearing rumors that are not true on a cnn crawl, you sort of go this is cnn. >> reporter: technology has changed the business and the landscape of celebrity and fame. everybody, they can't get it quick enough now. we are so obsessed with celebrities. celebrities are sort of like the disease of our culture now, you know. everybody can't get enough. they want it on their phones, on the internet. they want it instantly. >> reporter: although a paparazzi slaw in place in california it's being -- law is in place in california it's being challenged in the courts meaning it's pictures as usual. >> i think being a public person, a celebrity people are interested in means they're going to want to know all about you and the minutia of your daily life is sort of up for public consumption. that being said i've been witness personally to people seeking that information in a way that goes against the laws of traffic and other laws and so i don't know where the line is. >> it's probably not even true. we'll still read. it. >> reporter: in hollywood adam housley, fox news. >>> the new

for admitting needed workers. cnn chief congressional correspondent dana bash and cnn chief white house correspondent jessica yellin are working the story. dana, the tone was pretty optimistic up on capitol hill today. >> it sure was but, you know, we have seen this movie before, you and i, wolf, and a lot of other people watching this issue go kind of up and down with the partisan wins. but this is something that is different this time. because of something very simple. and that is what happened in the last election to republicans. particularly mitt romney with the latino voters. he lost big time. and that's why when i asked senator mccain and others who were standing right here where i'm standing, half a dozen years ago, why this is different, that's why they answered that way. listen to this. senator kennedy stood with you and, senator mccain, you were standing with him, and he said 2007 is the year we must fix our broken system. we must strike while the iron is hot. what makes you think, why is this year different? >> elections. elections. >> the republican party is losing the suppo
to the right place. >> cnn's athena jones is live in our washington bureau. good morning. john boehner was re-elected, but it wasn't easy, was it? >> about a dozen of his colleagues voted against him or for someone else like eric cantor or just said present. they abstained from voting. they said they wanted to put the speaker on notice. it isn't as though his leadership, him winning that election, was ever in doubt. let's listen to what one new congressman had to say to explain his vote. >> we are challenging leadership to let him know that we're going to hold him accountable just like i get held accountable in my district. we want to let him know we're watching. we're willing to work with leadership, and i look forward to doing that. that's why i stuck with the republican party with mr. cantor. >> and so in the end, boehner got 220 out of the caucus, 234. it's a small percentage of people that didn't end up voting for him, but it still signals there could be a little dissension in the ranks, which is what we've been seeing already. >> dissension in the ranks. we have a debt ceiling to tackle
